was in the bathroom and he intended to kill her. >> and about the remarkable strategy the defense is going to use to fight back. >> very novel predent setting legal argument. >> the events began just before 6:00 on valentine's eve, february 13th, 2013. here on the surveillance camera, you can see a smiling reeva steenkamp driving her silver mini past security guards standing watch over oscar's walled and debated subdivision. reeva was followed ten minutes later by oscar, driving a white bmw. by 10:00 p.m., oscar will claim, he had removed his prosthetic legs and was in bed watching tv while she practiced yoga on the floor nearby. this crime scene photo, not intended for public consumption but leaked to the media reveals a never to be opened valentine's gift from reeva to oscar, ossie as she liked to call him. it wasn't much later, according to oscar, they were both fast asleep. and then 3:00 a.m., this. more leaked photos show where four bullets blew through the bathroom door, two bullet holes marked by police appear to be about waist high. one of the bullets ended up in the base. after firing th

. now we have heard the defense accusing the police of contaminating the crime scene so far this morning. and we have heard one prosecution witness already in the first couple of hours of this trial. the prosecution have called witness number 80. michel berger heard blood occurred elling screams she said in the early hours of valentine's day 2013. she was questioned just before the court broke for lunch. this report on the day's events so far. >> reporter: oscar pistorius is escorted into the high court in the heart of pretoria for one of the most high-profile trials to ever take place in this country. hundreds turned out in the drizzle to see the arrival of the double amputee who rose to become a sporting hero and celebrity. there's an encampment of television crews from south africa and around the world. even a television drone made an appearance. relatives of both oscar pistorius and his girlfriend reeva steenkamp present. at the start of the trial, he was asked to plead to the central charge of murder as well as firearms charges related to separate occasions. >> did you understand th
was really interesting, after those charges were read out, the defense attorney erupting oscar pistorius laid out, if you will, some of the points of the defense. oscar pistorius signed an affidavit at his bail hearing said that he had heard a disturbance in the bathroom of his house just after he had been to retrieve some fans from the balcony of that apartment of that house, and that's when he grabbed the pistol from underneath his bed, went into the bathroom, shot those shots through the bathroom door. even the magistrate at the time at the bail hearing had said, how could oscar pistorius not have known that his girlfriend, reeva steenkamp, wasn't in the bed? well, listening to his defense attorney now, we're beginning to get some semblance of details added on. his defense attorney said as oscar, or just before oscar pistorius went to get those fans from his balcony, he had talked to reeva steenkamp in bed. the indication there laying the groundwork that he believed she was in bed because he had just talked to her. he said it was pitch dark and that's why he didn't know. so, we're beginnin
testimony taken apart, picked apart, with a very passionate prosecution from the pistorius defense team. a lot happening on day one, and this is what it's going to be like for the next few weeks, the next few months, sort of a roller coaster ride. >> before i let you go, it's been the reaction of south frick to this trial, does it really come down to whether oscar pistorius was wearing his prosthetic legs or not? >> no, i don't think it does come down to that, i think it's a lot more than that. you know, the ballistics will determine whether or not he had his prosthetic legs on. but i think what it really boils down to. this is about one judge. a very respected, experienced judge. listening to legal arguments, procedural arguments. about mistaken identity, about self-defense, murder, premeditated murder. self-defense again and again, and i think that's what's going to determine, what south african's think, what the police think or oscar's defense think, it all boils down to the judge. it's all about law in the end. >> thank you very much indeed. i want to bring in a man who's known osca
ground defense that many others have received. what she was separated from her kids, and she was sent to prison. she finally got some good news last fall when an appeals court ordered a new trial. but now a stunning announcement from her prosecutor. state attorney angela corey says she'll try to put marissa alexander in prison for 60 years. 60 years. that's triple alexander's original sentence. it's essentially a life sentence if she is convicted at this upcoming trial. so marissa alexander fires a warning shot. no one is hurt, and she faces 60 years in prison? while others have shot and killed and are walking free today. where is the justice in that? . >> joining me now is lisa bloom, legal analyst for the "today" show and avo.com, and the author of "suspicion nation: the inside story of the trayvon martin injustice and why we continue to repeat it." thank you for being here, lisa. >> thank you, reverend al. >> lisa, how can angela corey try to put marissa alexander behind bars for 60 years when she was originally sentenced to just 20? >> this is another outrage from angela corey's o
's defense budget is about 18 times that of ukraine but nato should restart talks on providing assurances to countries like poland including perhaps building the missile defense system that was abandoned. in economic terms, washington and the eu should consider sanctions that would be effective. ones targeted specifically at individuals who could be held responsible for acts of aggression against ukraine. washington cannot stop vladimir putin as he creates facts on the ground in crimea. but step back and consider what a strategic disaster this is for him. ukraine has slipped out of russia's orbit and most of the population there is going to be hostile toward russia for generations. countries like poland that had eased up relations with moscow will view it with great suspicion. all european countries will put their relations with russia under review. even china will surely oppose the brazen violation of national sovereignty, something beijing has is always concerned about. within russia people have seen that putin is terrified of a democracy movement and will brutally oppose it, not really
's denial that they are russian forces, describing them at local defense forces. for more on what's going on in ukraine we are joined by aljazeera correspondent nick shiffrin in ukraine. nick, good to have you on the show. tensions are still very high there. we just showed the dramatic incident where ukrainian troops approached russians and were met with warning shots. you faced serious tensions of your own. >> yeah, absolutely, antonio. what we're seeing is aboccupation by russia that is growing more threatening and a pro russian demonstration here that is becoming more emboldened. we saw many russian troops by the side of the road, at the beginning of the day ran into two or 300 of them. they refused to answer our questions. they had no identifying flag, but did have markings on their uniforms that suggested they were russian military units, driving in cars with russian military plates and all of the language or all of the books that we saw them carrying were russian military books. so there does seem to be more troops on the ground here, and as i said, they are growing more threatening
with two hands. andre -- you notice the knicks play defense like -- i don't know, like every other possession occasionally. they were hacking each other. 73 points at the half. thompson with a miss. and, thank you, used to play for the knicks. warriors with defense of their own. look at clay thompson harassing carmelo anthony. warriors roll 126-103. after winning in philadelphia, the sharks shuffled off to buffalo to face the last sabers and ryan miller was traded to st. louis. they were short-handed. a former college goalie didn't play. they didn't need him. buffalo power play. cody shoots and scores. sharks answer in the second period. it is james shepherd in front to tie it one a piece right between the legs. they are sliding in. a couple of retakes at the top of the third. flint at the faceoff. 2-1, sabers. and then tyler meyers, where is the defense? back into a back-to-back, i guess, but the sharks lose 4-2. if you believe in conspiracies, and i do, then it looks like something fishy went down as mets' first basemen rallied in the wee hours of the morning to defeat oakland's
florida's stand your ground law in her defense. an appeals judge threw out that conviction and freed from prison right before thanksgiving. she faces a retrial and delay and this week the prosecution announced they are seeking consecutive, not concurrent sentences which would make it 60 years. that's practical terms a life sentence. >> for shooting a wall. >> for shooting a wall. >> i disagree with that. i don't think it's shooting the wall. >> let's start with you. the taco, what is your take in legal terms, what's the basis for seeking consecutive? sfl the law permits it and she's charged in three counts. there are 20-year counts. look, the attorney general, prosecution is doing what the law gives them the ability to do and discretion to do. this case i think underscores more than anything the unfair results and sentencing you can have when these guidelines and sentencing sort of mandatory minimums strip the judge from the judge's discretion, evaluate all of the facts and circumstances. this lady was given 20 years and the judge all but said i wish i could do something else. i've been a
of us that the chinese and iranians are watching this feeble response as we're gutting our defenses and they're planning their own next moves. it's not a good picture. >> colonel, we know that president obama and president putin spoke on the phone for about an hour and a half. do you think president obama understands the gravity of the situation and how important ukraine really is? >> no. in fact, i don't think that they recognize that this is a foretaste of what's to come if we continue the path that we're on for unilateral disarmament. we've got to stop battering our allies, like israel with the lunacy of trading land for peace. we need to build the xl pipeline, which our canadian allies want us to do and the obama administration can't figure out how to do it. if the iranians close the straights of hormuz next week, the price of oil is going to go through the roof and the economy is going to grind to a halt. all of these are the kinds of things that when america decides, a, we're not going to lead, and b, we're going to destroy the opportunity to deter this kind of action with a s
to find it. we are cutting defense spending. we were talking about infrastructure, potholes, state funding. >> you have to make sacrifices. >> in the previous segment. the people who are serious want to pick up the amendment. if there's any room to maneuver or wiggle, i don't think the way they've approached the tax code gives me a lot of real faith. capital gains is an important area. by the way, to abby's point, you want to know a big idea, hold up or down votes on the floor. the speaker can put each one of these out. what i think happens here is similar to what happens on immigration. there's some piecemeal conversations but you can't actually get a vote on what i think are the most important parts. the capital gains thing, i'll end here, it's a problem because today's wealthy americans make more money through stock dividends than were before in history. >> right. >> our tax code has not caught up with that. you were alluding to that. if we don't deal with that, and i think deal with it in a much more assertive way, then we will continue to have a de facto loophole for the people who ne
a locked toilet door and killing her. the issue, was it murder? did he intend to kill her? >> his defense is it was a mistake and a reasonable person could have made the same mistake. fair enough, but that's a tough defense. >> reporter: pistorius says he's kept a gun under his bed for security. he's always maintained it was all a tragic accident. the prosecution argues the shooting was deliberate. >> considering that oscar pistorius shot his own girlfriend in his own home multiple times, you would think it might be a victory for them if the judge only convicts him of the lesser crime of culpable homicide meaning it was a negligent shooting. >> reporter: well, his defense team is leaving no stone unturned hiring u.s. firm evidence room which specializes in producing animations of crime scenes and also turning to forensic scientist henry lee who as you'll recall gave evidence during the o.j. simpson trial. now, the oscar pistorius trial is expected to last up to six weeks. most of it will be televised. dan and bianna. >> of course, the world will be watching. lama, thank you. >>> well, on
. frugalityusterity and of the national defense. how do we project a state department policy if we are recovering from two wars and want to take the armed services back? >> with great difficulty. dimension is absence. this will not be a crisis that teachers u.s. military use of force. carriers are not going to the black sea. we are engaged at all, it is about what we say and do with our allies. we have no powerful course of instruments that can merge them on this front. by cap we learned anything about the way russia has made the moves? i've remember when georgia invaded the south. there was an interesting cyber attack that precluded that. i was wondering if you saw anything that happens in crimea that was similar? >> i think there is a lesson to be learned. i think the big lesson is to be learned from the administration. he got caught trying to negotiate a secret deal with putin about the missile defense system. russia may be violating the treaty without action by the administration. this administration has been pursuing an narrative that is just not accurate. it has put allies at a very disadvantage
, to prove that oscar pistorius fired his gun with the intent to kill reeva. oscar's defense says it was a tragic mistake driven by his fear of crime and vulnerability. at a bail hearing last year, oscar gave his most detailed account of what happened. it filled me with horror and fear of intruder or intruders of being inside the toilet. i fired shots at the toilet door and shouted to reeva to phone the police. outside the courthouse, media has been preparing for days. more than 2,000 journalists have applied for accreditation to cover this trial to give you a sense of how intense it will be followed. inside the courthouse here behind me, officials say they'll limit the access into the courtroom. about 100 or so passes have been given, including representatives from both families. in south african law, it will come down to one judge, not a jury, who in the end will decide whether oscar pistorius, once a hero to millions around the world, is, in fact, a criminal. ayman mohyeldin, nbc news, pretoria, south africa. >>> up next here, we go live to the red carpet to check in with al ro
. the latest ultimatum coming to according to ukraine's defense ministry from russia's black sea fleet, saying if ukrainian bases don't evacuate by 5:00 p.m. local time, they will storm them, russian troops will storm them. given that most people acree at this point, russia has complete operational control over crimea, it is not clear what this latest escalation will accomplish. but it is also not clear from what we've been seeing what the endgame here is for russia. it is bizarre that it is almost old news that russian troops fanned out across crimea and surrounding ukrainian military bases. we're hearing disturbingly about other bases in eastern ukraine where russian flags are hosted in eastern ukraine. pro-russians took over a floor of a main administrative building. >> those who are in crimea and if they present any legal and i would raise it again, any legal power in crimea, they try to squeeze ukrainian efforts, come to seize ukrainian property, tried to disarm the ukrainian army. >> reporter: there has been tough talk from western leaders like brit intaken's foreign -- britain's foreign
in. >> oscar pretorius has pleaded not guilty to the murder of his girlfriend. >> a defense team will try and prove he shot fine camp by mistake. prosecutors say it was premeditated and will seek a life sentence if prestorious is con corrected. >> the hong kong business tycoon and british british football car son-in-law young has been found guilty of five money laundering charges. the owner of birmingham city was found guilty of launchedering $93 million in hong kong >> reporter: he first came to prominence in 2009 when he bought the birmingham football club. in 2011, the club was relegated from the please, sir league and that same year, carson was arrested and charged with money lau laundering. those charges relate to bank accounts held here in hong kong with more than $93 million passed through. delivering his verdict, a judge said he was not a witness of truth and exaggerated his income in hair dressing, the stockmarket and his gambling habits. supporters from the birmingham ball club who attended the trial said they were happy with the result but wanted to know what would hap
key for the u.s., allies on the western border, allies we have defense agreements with. and really the front of an east-west pull, not a cold war necessarily but cold war-like. >> let's role play. i'm russia. you guys let's just game out how this goes forward. the state of play is i went in. they want me there. this is my place. i have military there. you butt out. these days are over of me not being able to expand, they want me, there i'm there. they are unstable, not me. talking about the ukraine. what's the best response from west? >> first of all the united states has to get on the same page with the european allies and that's the challenge because those european allies have depended on that russian gas. russia has more leverage or them than we do, especially germany. when the u.s. went out and said maybe we'll kick russia out of the g-8 the germans said no, we're not on that. obama's first challenge is unify the european allies, take leadership over that and figure out what they can do. if russia can divide with american allies we can't exercise much loench. >> strong point es
the biggest trial of the century. certainly so far it is. >> reporter: the defense claims it was a tragic mistake. pistorius thought steenkamp was an intruder in the home. he acted in self defense. prosecutors allege it was deliberate. he opened fire during an argument in early hours of valenti valentine's day last year. the prosecution will claim he was reckless and gun happy. new images show pistorius on a gun range,i shooting the pistol that killed steenkamp. there is evidence of a flirtatious and loving couple. >> we're looking at a double tragedy, really. because no matter what happens, his life will never be the same again. >> reporter: the trial is due to last three weeks, but a long list of witnesses mean it could last much longer. spending the last few hours inside that courtroom, i can tell you it is truly incredible in there. reeva steenkamp's family is sat shoulder to should we are oscar's family. george, none of them are even looking at each other. >> thank you, hamish. get back to the oscars now. josh what an interview with cate blanche blanchett. >> i got to sit down with c
for the verdict? >> every case is different but in this case, you had a lot of things going for the defense. one of the things about a famous defendant is it brings you the best of times and worst of times on the justice system. on the good side you can get the best lawyers and best experts and it doesn't hurt to be a kennedy. juries are going to give you not only a reasonable doubt but sometimes a benefit of a doubt that isn't so reasonable. >> and right, also i think everyone takes ambien and knows that's a relatable thing. i prefer ny gsquil. >> this took 20 months and required change of venue. do you think prosecutors made the right decision to pursue the case? >> i think the prosecutors are looking at this and saying look, we had no choice. she was arrested and impaired and in a condition where anybody else would have been arrested. we have to treat a famous person and the problem was it was a close case. when the defense worked it and prosecution expert witness saying yeah, you could take it and actually not know that you're impaired, when you get that kind of admission from the prosecutio

on how much pressure should be put on russia. >> you could say it is time to put that missile defense shield back in the czech republic. >> too late. >> initial negotiations to make ukraine part of nato as well as other surrounding nations that want to be part of nato and russia saying you're getting too close to our borders, let's be honest. and the president of the united states would have to admit that. even secretary of state john kerry acquiesced to this notion. the mind set of set and reset a relationship has failed. the mind-set of putin, somebody hei] thought he for every day they stay in the crimea, add to their suspension. do something. >> and flood ukraine with economic aid and start pulling them away from russian natural gas and let you start selling our natural gatt at a price in which they can deal with that helps that economy stand on its own. >> one of the problems is if europe were to try to extract some pain from mr. putin, all those pipelines run across the ukraine -- i think there are about 10 or 11 of them, all putin would have to do is turn off the seven that go
the russian defense ministry says that is not true, there is no ultimatum. clear is that the ukraine is in control of the russian military. there has been a real steady buildup since the first eight on fridays arrived and surrounded the bases. and now they are very much a control. >> tells about the situation the capital there. they're preparing for meetings with international monetary fund. >> that is correct of they just sat down with the director. they're going to meet with the imf, what timing, eh? ,kraine intends to ask of and intends to receive a funding --llars of $3 billion in funding. perhaps in an announcement this week, they think it would take them two to get thes to actually first cache. interesting of with this backed up,tor -- because you have investors really is earned about holding ukrainian debt. the russian military presence in ukraine is helping them to focus western minds, and soda pressuring them to impact gave ukraine this money that maybe would have taken a little bit longer to give if it had not been this way. you.an, thank a look at how united states and oth
's the president and democrats sort of playing defense, and what are they playing defense against? they have a very sluggish economy that the president has to to take credit more, and diss rollout of the health care law, people losing their insurance, losing their doctors, having to pay more in premiums. how are they going to change the conversation? well, they go back to income inequality which creates the sort of class warfare issue that we saw in 2012 between the 1% and everybody else. and we've already seen that in the senate and the in the house and congress right now where democrats are pushing the idea of increasing the minimum wage and restarting the federal unemployment benefits and more stimulus. these are arguments we've order in the past, but they trot them out now in an election year to try to get everybody talking about this as the reason why people are not doing better in this economy, and it takes everybody off the conversation of the health care law. so it's sort of a win/win for democrats. and if you look at polls, it resonates with voters. voters support a minimum wage increase o
for this or a defense of it it. >> who came up with this idea? whose idea was it? >> national. >> we all get together. >> it's more complicated here because we don't have a single pair system like they do overseas. it's also, even though it wasn't dreamed up as part of health cair.gov. >> so we can't blame this one on obamacare. >> blame it on the same people running the healthcare law because they decided not to give it end-to-end testing before it's being implemented. it's not been tested. look at the possible repercussions here it could cost a small medical firm somewhere around $80,000. a large medical firm could cost them $2.7 million. and if they don't. >> it's not the cost it's the nutty stuff. i can't get past the nutty stuff to get to the cost. >> contact with venomous frog. there is no such thing as venomous frog. they have got it in there stephen hayes went and tried to find out if anyone in the world has ever died from flaming water skis. it's not true. what is going on. >> this has got to be the end. i'm back with kirsten. this is crazy. >> steve hayes isn't here tonight. is this for rea
the prosecution's case seemed to stumble. there were allegations of police mismanaging evidence and the defense will delve into oscar's fear of crime that propelled him to shoot at what he said he thought was an intruder who broke into his house in the middle of the night. as an olympian,sc pistorius made south africa proud on the world stage. tomorrow his life and his actions will take center stage in a courtroom here. that, too, will be watched just as closely by his countrymen and many around the world. lester, the trial gets under way tomorrow with opening statements by the prosecution, and in a first for this country, a south african judge has allowed cameras in the courtroom. it's going to be televised. a lot of people will be watching it. the trial is expected to last from three to five weeks and a verdict possibly weeks after that. you can imagine it is going to grip the nation and a lot of media attention from around the world. >> thanks. we're going to switch gears and talked about the red carpet. for many people, the only question that matters is who are you wearing? we take a closer

that is having an identity crisis. probably more than that, the fear is tangible on this end, the defense of cultural displacement is so pronounced that i wonder, you know, from your perspective, when you have a texas population that is majority hispanic, what corner of the republican party is left in? >> yeah. what we are seeing right now, the republican party is seek income their yield. they are probably looking at these numbers and doing so because of that. the question is what is the republican party going to do going forward because of these dem gravgs? are they going to change? are they going to moderate? it wasn't too long ago george w. bush in his re-election for governor in the state of texas got 49 sponsors of the elected vote. if the republican party decide to moderate, they can harness the vote. latinos here in texas a idea logically more conservative. let's get the republican party dismisses these number, doesn't want to moderate. they keep on the same track. in that case, the democratic party really has the advantage? that being said, they would have to mobilize. they really
previously of the war saw pact and reaffirm the collective defense of nato, ie., putin needs to know those countries are off limits. those are the three elements of the obama strategy that's developing. >> how about your assessment, the grander question of putin? certainly he has nostalgia for the old order, greater russia but he's no hitler. where would you place him in terms of his aggressiveness? his willingness to go in bringing back the captive nations, wouldn't go that far, would he? is this the limit of where he's going to go with crimea? >> putin is two things, a russian nationalist, for the last 14, 15 years, his primary strategic goal is to restore pride too russia and restore strength to russia and have other countries respect russia's role in the world and expand russian influence in their near abroad. he's been intimidating armenia and ukraine and saying, don't join the western group, stay under our orbit. but at the same time, chris, he's a realist. he respects power. that's why it's so important for the united states and for president obama to be a strong leader here. becaus
